Comedian Peter Berman’s big break occurred when hallucinogenic drug guru Dr. Timothy Leary caught his act and invited the then-University of Michigan student to perform a gig in Los Angeles at Hollywood Improv. One year later, with a degree in communications in tow, Peter moved to Los Angeles and quickly became a regular on the stand-up comedy scene. The multi-talented Berman has written and hosted the nationally syndicated morning radio show “Morning Sickness”, contributed material to “The Howard Stern Radio Program” and helped create and produce the HA Brothers Comedy Tour, which raised thousands of dollars for charities and civic groups.
